Description

The small coral island known as Denis Private Island, located on the northern edge of the Seychelles archipelago, combines a Robinson Crusoe atmosphere with high-quality service and an overall sustainable concept. Denis Private Island could theoretically function with complete self-sufficiency, because much of the food (such as herbs, vegetables, meat or fish) comes from the island's own farm in the center or from the surrounding waters. Spirits and selected ingredients for high-quality dishes are nevertheless imported, so that the discerning guest lacks nothing. The island is named after its discoverer, Denis de Trobriand. The island's tropical thicket is home to many rare bird species and giant tortoises, while the flowery white sand beaches are lined with coconut palms.
